The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, #1)

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, #1) - Douglas Adams Read this review, and many more on my blog October Tune!

I haven’t made many notes about this book, because I was so busy with getting myself ‘into’ the book, that I didn’t really bother writing down the things I liked or didn’t like.

Like I said, I found it hard to get into the book, not just because it was written about thirty years ago, and because of the fact that a lot was explained in this short book. I started it September, and I barely got past ten pages, and then I put it down for a while, to read other books that were a bit easier to read. A couple of days ago I picked it up again and read up until the forty pages. Last night I reached the ninety pages and decided to watch the movie, which I had downloaded a while ago.

The movie was nice, though the beginning (with the dolphins) was a bit odd; but I liked it. It had Martin Freeman as Arthur Dent (which is funny because I remember Arthur being described as a tall man, which Martin isn’t really); Zooey Deschanel as Trillion and Alan Rickman (voice) & Warwick Davis as the robot Marvin.

After the movie, I found it a bit easier to read the rest of the book, because I understood a bit more about the story because I had already seen it. Of course, like with any other movie-based-on-a-book, there were some differences but they didn’t really bother me much.

In the end, I enjoyed the story, and I am certainly planning on finishing the rest of the series (which I already have on my shelf). And I recommend this book to everyone who likes a nice and funny Sci-Fi story!
